The Round of 64 at the NCAA Tournament officially ended on Friday night. After a bevy of upsets during Day 2 of the tourney, several top seeds saw their seasons come to an abrupt end.

The first round of the tournament saw three No. 12 seeds take down No. 5 seeds. The only No. 5 seed to survive was Auburn in the Midwest Region - but the Tigers were nearly upset by New Mexico State.

N0. 13 UC Irvine take home the award for highest-remaining seed in the tournament after the Anteaters took down No. 4 Kansas State.

After the first round, ESPN reseeded the tournament, naming the best and worst teams left in the tourney.

Unsurprisingly, Duke remained the No. 1 overall seed.

Liberty, however, took home different honors. According to ESPN, the Flames are the worst team remaining:

From ESPN:

Mississippi State finished with a 2-4 record in its last six games when it suffered an 80-76 loss to Liberty in the first round. The Flames, who made just 34 percent of their 3-point attempts in the Atlantic Sun Conference, made 12-of-25 against the Bulldogs.

After taking down No. 5 Mississippi State, Liberty set a date with Virginia Tech. The Hokies dominated Saint Louis late Friday night by a final score of 66-52.

Round 2 of the NCAA Tournament kicks off on Saturday afternoon.
